    Pros

    The company was fine until the Rupert Murdoch take over was complete. That's when they started laying us off left and rigt.

    Cons

    You can start to feel more like a cog than a contributor from time to time.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your subordinates to show you what they can do, even if it's better than you.

    Pros

    Great people to work with
    Pay is good

    Cons

    New management has come in and cut a lot of the work force and things don't run half as well as they used to.
    Laid off employees that had been with the company for upwards for 20+ years.

    Advice to Management

    Have more respect for long time employees. Take the time to understand what people do before you fire them.
